Making things for Christmas....

I want to make things all the time, but I don't have much time.
Here are some things I made for this Christmas in between other things I made. Well those who follow and read me know that I made about 35 felt Christmas ornaments and donated them to the Parents' Association at my school and they were sold and all profits went to them to spend on good things for the school.
You can read all about it here.But I also made felt ornaments for friends as little gifts. Like this one!


I also made lots of felted stones to send as Christmas gifts and made some giveaways (I still owe a couple of those) and some for the shop. You can see some of them here.
And some more like these ones.This purple one was for a friend who asked for a purple one and I really loved making it!

Here are other things I made.
I painted lots of stones gold!What for? Well I just decorated them around the house. And I am planning to felt them for next Christmas!

I made wire tree felted stones, added some 2014 charms and gave them as gifts.
Here's my desk while creating. Well actually it is my son's desk and when he is not studying I use it.





 I painted some pinecones for decoration too.



I made some beaded wire pomegranate charms.

I made a toilet paper roll star following directions I learnt in this workshop. Thank you Anna!


I also made some jewelry for gifts or for the bazaars I took part.



 (Some of the jewelry is in the shop and some more will be added  soon.)
I was also asked to make felt brooches and I really loved creating them.


Finally here is the Christmas twig tree I tried to make this year!
Just a couple of twigs and you end up with a lovely tree behind your door! I had also added some little ornaments but Barca ate them up! I found the idea on the Internet here.


Oooops!

I love the little trees you made, but I have to admit that my absolute favourite is the heart pendant with little red hearts inside :o)
